Fox News contributor Guy Benson: I am gay and conservative, so what?


Fox News contributor Guy Benson released a video for for Prager University explaining that he is gay and conservative and it is completely alright, he has never thought that these two aspects of his personality, which are not a definition of him as a person though, y should exclude one another. The video is going viral, having already been viewed over 300,000 times. Prager U is a non-profit conservative digital platform. Despite its name, it is not an educational institution. Benson first came out in 2015 in his book End of Discussion. In this new video, he talks about why being gay and conservative makes him feel comfortable but does not mean that he should be a campaigner, either for LGBT rights or conservative values. ‘I fully recognize how fortunate I am to live in a time and a country where I can be openly gay and live a normal life. And that’s in large part thanks to the hard work of gay rights activists who’ve paved the way for people like me. People who had it much harder than I do and people who likely wouldn’t share my politics. I’m genuinely grateful to them,’ he said.
